France is one of the most visited countries in the world and with good reason. France will seduce you with world-class art and architecture, Roman temples and Renaissance châteaux, iconic landmarks known the world over, café terraces, village-square markets and quaint bistros showcasing the special of the day.
This country has it all: the French capital, Paris which is home to a rich cultural heritage and some of the most important monuments and world masterpieces ever created. It is here where you'll find the Eiffel tower, the Louvre Museum and the stunningly gothic Notre Dame.
France is also home to one of the most famous wine regions in the world, Bordeaux, a graceful city with beautiful boulevards, neoclassical architecture and a high-tech public transport system. Long known as La Belle Au Bois Dormant (Sleeping Beauty), this city is no longer in slumber but very awake, alive and vibrant.
There are many places to explore including the beautiful seaside resorts of Nice and Cannes with their amazing beaches and stunning landscapes, as well as mysterious Avignon, home of several popes and also antipopes and offers a treasury of magnificent art and architecture, none grander than the massive medieval fortress and papal palace, the Palais des Papes.
